Good morning,

we generally set up client printers to be shared via the DC, (single server environments)
we set the settings (banner page, duplex, colour or not) on the server but however we add the printers to the clients machines, (\\servername, right click connect. script. brows network/ add printer) the settings from the server do not come across. always have the default settings. this occurs on either 2003 or 2008 environments, not client os specific. happens on all versions of server/ client combinations. I’m obviously missing something. can anyone help?
